About a month ago over a Saturday latte, my friend Anna casually asked me if I might have some party ideas for an upcoming event to celebrate her boys 2nd and 4th birthdays. We decided to do a Kid’s Pirate Party theme, since their favorite cartoon characters live in Neverland. It took me all of 5 minutes to volunteer to design a full-on, bright and colorful party, featuring parrots, palm trees and pirate ships. After a month of planning, designing and making, this is the pirate party that evolved. It was a hit! Here are the details for the decorations and food that Anna, a few helping hands and I prepared: PALM TREE TUTORIAL in this post
See image below for the description of the full kit to create your own Kid’s Pirate Party!
STRIPED BAGS, & CHEVRON STRAWS: Shop Sweet Lulu. KRAFT GABLE BOXES: Paper Mart 6x6x9 (the treasure chest labels are part of the printable kit). LARGE PALM TREES: Super simple DIY wrapping a pole with burlap fabric and cutting out leaves from green paper. KID’S TABLE PIRATE SAIL: DIY by me and if anyone would like instructions and material specs, let me know. PIRATE SCARF & EYE PATCH: DIY and I will share a pattern for both on an upcoming post. TREASURE BAG: 6×8 inch Muslin bags. SKULL & CROSS BONE STENCIL: I will provide a template & tutorial on an upcoming post. PARTY FOOD & DRINK: Juice boxes, sangria (for adults), lemon water, tropical fruit skewers, mini pirate bananas, fish & chips (potato chips & goldfish), pirate booty (puffed popcorn), cannon balls (meat balls) octodogs (mini hotdogs) sandwich wraps, watermelon boat and balls, chocolate cupcakes with coconut cream frosting. Stay tuned for more pirate party post. Cheers! ~ Lia
